The Lyrics

I made a new twist to a children's song, for its setting is a highway instead of a railroad. I replaced the banjo with an oboe (because I'm a huge woodwind fan) and Dinah would be honking her horn instead of blowing it. These are few of the BIG changes of the song, so sing this to your kids!
I've been working on the highway,
All the long, long day,
I've been working on the highway,
Just to toss my cares away,
Can't you hear the siren blaring,
Wakes up so lately in the morn,
Can you hear the sheriff yelling,
"Dinah, honk your horn!"

Dinah, won't you honk,
Dinah, won't you honk,
Dinah, won't you honk your ho-o-orn

Dinah, won't you honk,
Dinah, won't you honk,
Dinah, won't you honk your horn,

Someone's in the RV with Dinah,
Someone's in the RV, I kno-o-o-ow,
Someone's in the RV with Dinah,
Squawking on the wood oboe,

And sounding, "Squeak, squawk, squeaky squi-oh,
Squeak, squawk, squeaky squi-oh,
Squeak, squawk, squeaky squi-ooooooh,"
Squawking on the wood oboe
